Allen West is a smart cookie, not to mention he took his oath of enlistment and office seriously..

How many would put a 9mm to a terrorist head and demand information that would save lives? Then ask how many would claim it was torture and should not have been done.. He's a sheep dog they are the sheep..

David, how is the XDS Springfield in .45 in the hands of a woman? Ease of operation (racking the slide), safety, etc. They tell me the recoil is not bad.

The specs says with a flush magazine, it holds 5+1 with 5 in the mag, and 1 in the chamber.

Mine is too big for the wife to hold comfortably, same with the Beretta.
When I mentioned her shooting it at the dealer they rolled their eyes and said it might not be a good thing. I don't think it would necessarily be the recoil as much as not being able to hold on to it with a weak grip.
The safeties shouldn't be an issue, the web between thumb and forefinger depresses the grip safety and it is very light, same with the trigger safety, very light pressure to release it.

My wife doesn't have the strength to rack the slide on the Springfield. She struggled to rack a Glock in both .380 and 9mm. That's why I went with the revolver. She played with a regular weight Taurus in .380 and when she held the ultra lite it was immediately her choice.
She hasn't shot much at all and that was years ago. I figure she is better off having something she likes and can handle easily. I'm not real crazy about a .380 as I think throwing it at someone will cause almost as much damage as shooting them, but it is better than nothing.. I told her if she is ever put in the position she has to use it to just keep pulling the trigger until it clicks..

I also bought her a laser lite/ practice round to practice with before we get to the range so she can get familiar with it..

I am still looking for an opportunity to take the CC test. I have a Springfield Micro .45 that is about the smallest thing I can still hold onto. (Big old hands and little gun problems....wait...nevermind..)
I haven't found a practical/comfortable CC holster yet.

Just noticed your last sentence Wes.

Very similar to this photo. Mine is a 4" barrel. This one is a 5 1/2".

I think I am going to give my daughter this little Colt Police Positive Special in .32-20. The gun was made in 1920 and is in remarkable good shape. The .32/20 is not so powerful but will scare shiot out of anyone, I suspect. At least it is safe and easy to use. I would not worry about her shooting off her kneecap as bad. I will tell her to leave the hammer on an empty chamber.

These little guns are fairly expensive but I have had this one for a long spell.

I think it would be cool to pack this little antique Colt six shooter.

I could see where it would be a handfull. I had a Berretta once that held 14 9mm and my hands are small and I swapped it. The literature tells these little XDS's in .45 to hold 5 in a flush mag and one in the chamber. I don't know.

We may be talking about 2 different XD's

I notice a similar XD called XD Mod 2 looks to have a smaller magazine, but it shows 9 capacity..

Post up a link..

I think it would be interesting/cool to carry that old colt in a western style holster.. Attention getter for sure..lol

Although we will have open carry after the first of the year, it's highly unlikely I will do so.. Can't see making myself a target for anti gun dummies for one ( as I do have somewhat of a temper when pushed)and if the bad guy don't know you are carrying then that just gives you one advantage over them..

I think open carry is just asking for some kind of trouble.

Yep..

I agree that it's our right to do so, but the trouble from open carry will come from the liberal idiots that think they should be allowed to tell us what's right or wrong or how we should live.

Then there is the idiot that will misuse the right.

I just think there will be some (you see them at Wal Mart everyday) that will be too ignorant about it.

Just because you carry a gun, does not mean that you will prevail. To prevail, one must be deliberate, and I don't think many will be that deliberate.

If I was going to open carry, this is what I would pack on my hip. Hawes .44 magnum. The .44 will bring home the bacon.

Ex-Lobsterman who fought off intruder could face eviction for gun

A retired Maine lobsterman who fought off an intruder -- shooting him with a gun he bought less than a day earlier for protection against intruders -- now is fighting his landlord, who is warning he could face eviction for possession of the weapon.

Harry Lembo, 67, said he armed himself with a 1943 Russian-made revolver on Aug. 31 after five burglaries in six years at his Rockland apartment complex. The next day, Lembo shot and wounded a man he believed had broken into his apartment to steal prescription medication he uses for chronic pain, according to the Bangor Daily News.
But Lembo's battle was just beginning.

Take note if you own a firearm!!!
A 53-46 vote
The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11:
"CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries".
By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.
This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around...reloading.
Now, which 46 Senators voted to destroy us? Well, let their names become known ! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 "legis..traitors". vote against them.
In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.:
Baldwin (D-WI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bennett (D-CO)
Blumenthal (D-CT)
Boxer (D-CA)
Brown (D-OH)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Cardin (D-MD)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Coons (D-DE)
Cowan (D-MA)
Durbin (D-IL)
Feinstein (D-CA)
Franken (D-MN)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Harkin (D-IA)
Hirono (D-HI)
Johnson (D-SD)
Kaine (D-VA)
King (I-ME)
Klobuchar (D-MN)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Leahy (D-VT)
Levin (D-MI)
McCaskill (D-MO)
Menendez (D-NJ)
Merkley (D-OR)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Murphy (D-CT)
Murray (D-WA)
Nelson (D-FL)
Reed (D-RI)
Reid (D-NV)
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Sanders (I-VT)
Schatz (D-HI)
Schumer (D-NY)
Shaheen (D-NH)
Stabenow (D-MI)
Udall (D-CO)
Udall (D-NM)
Warner (D-VA)
Warren (D-MA)
Whitehouse (D-RI)
Wyden (D-OR)
Folks, this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.
46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.


L8R, Mike
